I have sung in one madrigal choir and formed and directed my own madrigal ensemble, so I am familiar with most of the selections in this recording. It is difficult to bring off some of these pieces as listening music, since many of them were written to be enjoyed as recreational music for the performers, and not for consumption by an audience.
